Tattoo artist Inal Bersekov has shared photos of Drake’s two latest tattoos to Instagram — one a tribute to Drizzy’s late friend Fif, the other a portrait of Denzel Washington.
Fif, a 33-year-old affiliate of Drake’s OVO Sound record label, died last week after reportedly being shot in Toronto. Drake shared a photo of his late friend on Instagram, later using that same photo as the basis for his tattoo. Above the tattoo is the inscription “Forever Fif.”
Bersekov, whose B.R.O. Studio is based in Belgium, wrote on Instagram that he was “honored to pay tribute tattooing “FIF” on my brother [Drake].”
Drake’s second tat of the week is a portrait of iconic actor Denzel Washington as fictional jazz trumpeter Bleek Gilliam from Spike Lee’s 1990 movie Mo’ Better Blues.
About this one, Bersekov wrote “Mo’ better blues” first session on my brother [Drake] , thanks as usual for your trust.” Bersekov then references a quote from the movie, writing “‘Clarke: ‘Cause mo better makes it mo better.'”
According to Pop Star Tats, Drake now has 30 tattoos. His ink already includes tributes to his father, Lil Wayne, late R&B princess Aaliyah, as well as a matching shark tattoo he shares with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
